    More like extra character, not flaws.

    Lol... yeah, character that has you wishing it didn't have...

    Trouble is you guys only see the photos... the best photos... and not all the real life angles that spawn those wonderful ideas of "character"... Maybe I simply complain too much and need to take some new photos that highlight the issue... or maybe not...lol

    2nd intensifying coat today. Starting to look pretty good I think. ( Lots of character lol )
    Only decision now is whether to give another intesifying coat or go to the finishing coats.

    Generally the colour does deepen over a few months as the finish totally cures. Not a lot, but a little. If truly in doubt, leave it a week and you may find patches you have missed that convince you to do a further coat.
    Current:
    New/Replacement Scratch Lapsteel
    ES-5V

    Completed:
    Custom ST-1 12 String
    JBA-4
    TL-1TB
    Scratch Lapsteel
    Meinl DIY Cajon
    Cigar Box lap steel

    Wishing:
    SG
